October art thread 

I want to try some stuff from prompts here and there, but I think I'm going to set myself a task of just working on some art every day for October

One of my problems with "X thing every day for a month" is I almost immediately start thinking of other things I'd rather do, it's incredibly hard to force myself to continue, and the few times I have powered through don't feel satisfying at all

So let's try this! Why not!

October art thread: the 1st 

I just did the resin and glue for this little tea set in a bottle I've been working on: vampire themed!

The things are roughly 1:12 dollhouse scale, and the jar is about 2 inches across

These shrinky-dinks are for a larger project, if that goes well you'll barely be able to see them at all, but I had a lot of fun making them

I wish I could say I picked them for significance but I actually picked them based on having short names to write out and imagery that was easy to see once shrunk

There's nothing that makes me more excited in art than doing something new

October art thread: the 3rd 

Part of a larger project, again, but it's very relaxing to make a rickety little table out of coffee stirrers and disposable chopsticks

October art thread: the 4th 

A night sky paint gradient in a dollar store mini crate, I was hoping the streakiness would look like clouds, but it looks more like streaks of paintβ€” but I don't think I mind it

Trees made of floral wire, I can't tell if I want to make any more what with the limited space in the crate, I'll have to play with it

And a cushion seat and tablecloth for the table and tarot cards, still thinking through some things there

I wanted to do more today, but sometimes I get my mind stuck on a trackβ€” I wanted to paint the rest of this ground before doing anything else, and it's very humid and rainy today, so it wouldn't dry

Since taking the photo I did get it sanded and coated with gesso which will hopefully dry overnight

October art thread: the 6th 

A lot of technical progress but not a lot to show for it today: got some toads sculpted and some ground painted, which sets up for more impressive things tomorrow

Now I have to figure out the correct order of operations to wire the lights

October art thread: the 7th 

It's not done but I'm so close! I got all the lights wired and they look great, but I'm not taking a photo of them lit yet

October art thread: the 8th 

Still not done! Time got away from me today

But boy I love putting in little mosses and twigs and tufts of grass 🌿

I think I'm going to remake that little tarot table, I think I need something smaller

Everything's assembled in the case finally! Now I just have to paint the outside and add that table

Maybe I'll be done tomorrow? I don't want to jinx it

I'm done!! I did remake the table at about half the size, which makes everything in the grove look bigger, which I love

The inspiration for this was the AI Neural Network art prompt list of landscapes, I didn't follow along with the daily prompts but the one "Fortuneteller's Grove, toad boulders" really spoke to me, so I made that

I love the lights so much, it'll be hard to make anything unlit now ✨

Making some 2D stuff again, preliminary sketches for a new Louisa Industries x LNP ( @lnpgaceta ) t-shirt

I'm going to draw this but I want it to look like a papercut design, we'll see how this experiment goes

I censored the notes in the circles telling me which designs go where because I don't want to just say what they'll be, I want to show you what they'll be as I draw them

Beep boop my hand is cramping from sketching so hard, there's graphite everywhere

Yesssssss feeling good about the progress, a few little details and I can start copying it over onto white paper in black ink for the final draft

Oh no!!! I did something yesterday and totally forgot to post it 😬

I haven't broken my streak of doing at least a little bit of art every day though, haha I'm not owned, I'm not owned

All done! Now it's up to the LNP to clean up the scanned image a bit, and it'll be on t-shirts soon βœ¨πŸ‘šβœ¨

On to something newβ€” I didn't get a whole lot done, but I'm on my way

I bought a grab bag of leather upholstery scraps and I'm going to make whatever I feel like, I think, up first is a pouch to slide onto a belt

I just made a pattern based on what I think I want, and tomorrow I'll cut the leather and start figuring out how to stitch it
